Sample text

Since then at an uncertain hour, Now oftimes and now fewer, Paul Lawley That anguish comes and makes me tell My ghastly aventure. (544-45, lines 611-18, 1798 text) And then he begins, presumably, “There was a Ship …” (528, line 10). The final event of the Mariner’s story, the strangest of the strange judgements upon him, consists of his being compelled to tell his story of transgression and strange judgements, a story which ends with him being compelled to tell his story … – and so on. The mariner enters into “[t]he Night-mare LIFE-IN-DEATH” (194) of his own tale; the watersnake swallows its own tail, and the “penance of life” (208) is endlessly exacted.

Coleridge’s monster of solitudes finally affirms the efficacy of prayer in “goodly company” (545). The frame is distinct from the narrative itself: “The Rime of the Ancyent Marinere” is not a recursive narrative. To read it as such is not even an understandable misreading. 2 Recursive narrative has, in the words of the psychoanalyst Donald P. Spence, “an uncanny feel about it” (188) which fits with this most uncanny of poems. 3 That shadow alerts us to the relation between transgression, expiation and narrative act which is as strongly figured in “The Ancient Mariner” as in any Beckett text.

All have turned wisely tail, before the ultimate penury, back to the mere misery where destitute virtuous mothers may steal stale bread for their starving brats. (143) He later recapitulates the claim, refusing the recuperative effort “to make of […] this fidelity to failure, a new occasion, a new term of relation,” thus making it “an expressive act, even if only of itself, of its impossibility, of its obligation” (145). B’s refusal to turn creative poverty to account constitutes not just the ultimate argumentative impasse of Three Dialogues but a crucial moment in what I am identifying as a tradition of failure, which begins with Coleridge and Romanticism.
